2020 Chardonnay

$40.00$480.00

Two blocks of GinGin clone were utilised – one at the southern end of the Wilyabrup sub-region, and the other from further north in the Yallingup area.

Fruit from Wilyabrup was wholebunch pressed, a portion in basket, while the Yallingup portion was destemmed before pressing. All juices sent separately to French Oak (15% new) for natural fermentation. 25% of the barrels were allowed to go through malo. Bottled October, unfined, unfiltered.

Ideally lightly chilled – with antipasti, chargrilled veges or tomato-based pasta, pizza and risotto.

Description

Another early ripening seasoning and we picked the Chardonnay blocks a little earlier than the past, mostly to retain that crisp fresh acidity.

Lemon drop and subtle nutmeg/cinnamon show up first on the nose, some rose petal, mint leaf and lemon honey. A touch of new oak shines through, adding a touch of vanilla pod to the limey wildflower notes.

The palate is light, delicate, not showy. Broad white peach and apricot for the bass notes, and steely lime and lemony acidity makes up the tight structure and fills the back palate.
